    This is why public employee unions have got to go...they are too powerful. Tomorrow, tens of thousands of people will likely be unable to visit family over Thanksgiving or heavily delayed due to a strike at Los Angeles Intel. In addition, the strike could cause delays and cancellations all across the transportation network. The employees claim they need more healthcare, but it's just unethical to strike when you work for the only service of your kind in your city, especially when it'll prevent people from seeing family on Thanksgiving. Take a look at the union leaders excuses in an interview today:

    The state needs to act and make these strikes illegal.

    The unions have already started shutting down traffic around LAX. It will no doubt make the unions far more sympathetic.

    1. No one is striking.
    2. The union involved is not a public sector union.

    It's not about greed......it's about fucking with people they don't like. Sowing the seeds of discontent. This is why the now unionized TSA loves harassing passengers.
